Bayern Munich hosts RB Leipzig in round 21 of the German Bundesliga. The match will be played on Saturday, February 5th at Allianz Arena (Munich)
Julian Nagelsmann’s team leads the German Bundesliga standings with 49 points. Bayern Munich has 16 victories, one draw, and three defeats after 20 rounds. The Bavarians maintain their familiar top position in the Bundesliga, although their advantage over second-ranked Borussia Dortmund is relatively small. The teams are separated by six points, so it’s too early for the Reds to relax. In the last two rounds, Nagelsmann’s men gained landslide away victories. On January 15, Bayern Munich dealt with FC Koln (0-4), and eight days later, Hertha Berlin suffered a romp from the reigning champions (4-1).

RB Leipzig is in sixth place in the Bundesliga standings with 31 points. The Bulls gained nine victories and four draws and suffered seven losses in 20 matches. The team failed the first half of the season, which is why head coach Jesse Marsch was fired. He was replaced by Domenico Tedesco, known for his work at Schalke and Spartak Moscow. In the first seven games under the management of a new coach, the Saxons lost only to Arminia Bielefeld (0-2), and the last four matches in the championship and the German Cup brought only victories. On January 23, the Red Bulls dealt with Wolfsburg at home (2-0). They breached the defense of the Wolves in the final 15 minutes. Goals by Willi Orban and Josko Guardiol brought the Saxons an important three points.
Bayern Munich will be the favorite of the match at Allianz Arena, although the Red Bulls will probably manage to avoid a romp. Under Tedesco, RB Leipzig has noticeably increased the reliability of the defensive line. In four previous matches, the Saxons conceded only one goal from Mainz, and three consecutive games ended with clean sheets. For this reason, you can try betting on low production in Munich. Under 3.5 goals scored were recorded in four out of five previous home matches of the Reds. Under Tedesco, RB Leipzig showed this outcome in five out of seven games. The statistics of head-to-head matches are also curious: no more than three goals were scored in nine out of 11 previous matches in the championship and the German Cup.
